App of the Day: Prisma Transforms Your Photos into Van Gogh and Picasso Style Artworks

prisma-app

A Russian iOS app called Prisma has finally made the merging of famous artworks and your own images as easy as 1, 2, 3. Using a combination of neural networks and God knows what else you’re now one step closer to making things like this. Spotted this over on Prosthetic Knowledge (of course).

    One of the pieces of art that is used as a filter is by a friend of mine. I asked this artist if they had been contacted by Prisma about licensing their work, but she didn’t know anything about it until a few days ago when several people started email the artist about seeing her work in the app. I can only assume that several, if not all, of the images used as source for filters were used without permission.

    The app is fun, and I appreciate your endorsement of it, but they are not operating fairly, and I would hope you might reconsider your position on this app; at the very least, perhaps ask the developers about the art licensing.
